In September 2012 we launched our first ever Body Gossip book. The book is an anthology of more than 300 of the stories we have received from you since our campaign began six years ago. The stories are written by people of all shapes and sizes, ages and races from all over the UK and cover everything from birth to ageing vis pregnancy, sport, diets, illness, disability, ethnicity, sexuality, tattoos - Anything body related! Some of the pieces are funny, some moving, some are controversial but they are all inspiring.
The book contains a foreword by Mr Body Confidence himself, Gok Wan, as well as entries from some of our celebrity supporters including Alesha Dixon, Jermain Defoe, Craig Revel-Horwood and Anne Diamond. You can order your copy online here.
Feeling inspired to write your own body story? We're ALWAYS looking for new pieces from the public. So tell us about YOUR body, or how you feel about other people’s bodies, or the bodies we see in the public eye and your story could be chosen to be our story of the week, performed by our celebrity cast in a future live theatre event, made into a short film or published in our next book!
Lots of love,
